In particular he interested in this rapid growth and the future prospects of franchising on the Asian continent. “Descriptive manner, he tells from personal experience with food, land and people: for years I listen to now, that the twenty-first century to the Asian” century will be.

After all, what I see there and was allowed to experience, can I in good conscience say that the economic future of India will belong to, particular with regard to the franchising. But before I tell you my personal experience in India, let me cite some facts demonstrating why franchising in India is such a huge success with excellent future prospects: India’s population has now grown to over 1 billion people, live three times more people in India than in the United States in direct comparison. This development continues, India will be the third largest economy in the world in a few decades.

Yet the success can be explain the franchising in India alone due to the size of the population. The continuous upward movement of the Indian economy is driven mainly by an emerging middle class, which turns to more and more of the Western world, particularly America. During my wanderings through the night life of New Delhi, the similarity of Indian nightclubs took me to their American Counterparts very surprised.
